Ten is an album by Brian McKnight, released December 5, 2006, and his first and only for Warner Bros. Records. The album was originally titled, Brian and scheduled to be released on November 14, 2006. Due to the death of Gerald Levert, who died four days prior to the album's initial release date, it was pushed back and renamed.

The first single, "Find Myself In You" was also available on the soundtrack to the motion picture "Madea's Family Reunion". The second single was "Used To Be My Girl" and was followed up in 2007 by "What's My Name".

Upon its release Return of the Mack received mixed reviews from music critics, who praised the vocals but misled production. The album debuted at number thirty-two on the US Billboard 200, selling about 63,000 copies in its first week.[1]

Background[edit]

McKnight is said to be experimenting with country-style music on the album.[2] Rhapsody had a week long (Nov. 27- Dec 1) preview of the entire album for free, the final album leaked two days later.
